every seasoned OH8 player knows that the best hands are the ones that can scoop the pot, by winning the lo side and the high
the fact that someone would call "just because its 10c" is ridiculous - thats fish mentality
this would be a good thing for me that they call with such garbage hands...but these guys were sucking out like no other
Agree with everything you say, but they were
fish, they were
plying for half the pot, and they were
calling every hand trying to hit the boat. You cant blame the players - if someone wants to sit down with $5 and have an hours entertainment playing every hand that's up to him. If you want to play a better game, with better hand selections, play higher limits - that's just common sense.
and "sucking out?" - there's much more chance of a big o/8 hand losing to garbage than a big Hold em hand - it's a post flop game.
